Proctoring Resources for Faculty

I am an OTC Faculty Member and I want to:

Please click on a + below to expand the section to find the resources you need

There are TWO things you need to do to let ProctorU and Testing Services know what resources (if any) your students should have access to for their proctored event:

ONE: To let folks at testing services know, please name/title your proctored event in Canvas with the word “proctored” in it, with the name of the assignment/exam/quiz, and an R or NR designation.

  • R = resources – this means your students will be allowed open resources (this includes books, notes, etc.)
  • NR = no resources – this means your students will only be allowed scratch paper, pen/pencil, and a basic calculator

For example:

Proctored Exam 3 (R) – Students will be allowed all resources.

Proctored Exam 3 (NR) – Students will not be allowed resources other than what is mentioned below.



*Note* Resource allocation for Proctor U Auto is handled through settings in Proctor U and are not related to the R or NR identification for physical test centers. 

Visit ProctorU to create a new account. Please use your OTC email address and make note of the password you will use to login to ProctorU in the future.

NOTE: there will be up to a 48 hour turnaround time for ProctorU to confirm your instructor status and activate your account. You will not be able to activate any exams to use ProctorU until your account has been authorized.

Here are some step by step instructions to get you started: Using ProctorU Auto 5-Step Instructions

In order to use ProctorU Auto you will need the following:

Great News!  For most courses – you won’t need to share any information with us (like you used to using the Faculty Request for Proctored Exam Form).  We have access to a new tool that will allow us to retrieve information about your proctored event directly out of Canvas.

Math faculty – please continue using the Faculty Request for Proctored Exam Form for your paper/pencil proctored exams.

Awesome!  The more pedagogically sound the proctored event can be – the better.  Nothing is worse for students or testing staff than a proctored event that isn’t helpful to the students’ academic progress.  Please feel free to think broadly about how to use your students’ time most wisely.

If you’re ready to try something new, first, please work directly with your department chair.  Then, once you have permission, please contact the staff at Testing Services and OTC Online so we can find the best way to incorporate your alternative proctored event into our processes (if necessary).

In the past, when you’ve changed something about the exam, you’ve needed to fill out a new Faculty Request for Proctored Exam form – but now, we have access to a tool that allows us to retrieve information directly from your Canvas site in real time.  So, no new form is needed – simply make the necessary updates in your course Canvas site.
